I have a server with pacificrack. When I see my website it says "Read-Only File system" and my SSH dies with read-only file system errors.
It happens once per month, and the bad thing is I'm sleeping when it happens so I don't know my server is in this state.
Even though support fixes the problem within 15minutes of my support ticket, my server is down for hours because I don't know its down to then raise a ticket. I asked support why it happens and they never tell me... just tell me to read the logs but I'm not technical enough to understand linux logs etc.
I currently have a VPS. I have installed cPanel/WHM + CSF Firewall.
Everything is fine and all the ports are closed except for the ones I need.
I currently have some issues I need to fix, but google isn't helping
Check /tmp is mounted as a filesystemWARNING/tmp should be mounted as a separate filesystem with the noexec,nosuid options set
I tried googling this and there was a cPanel script but I do not have permission to run it. So does anyone mind explaining it to me one step at a time?
You should consider adding ini_set to the disable_functions in the PHP configuration as this setting allows PHP scripts to override global security and performance settings for PHP scripts. Adding ini_set can break PHP scripts and commenting out any use of ini_set in such scripts is advised
I have disabled this in php.ini but I do not know why it still says that I have to fix this
We're considering deploying a large server that will have 8x 500GB drives in a RAID-10 config. I intend to use a 3ware 9650SE w/ BBU along with A/B power to each of the PSU's.
My question is... since this will return into a 2TB array/partition, in event of a crash (kernel panic, etc -- I expect a power outage will be very, very rare if at all) what do you guys think the fsck time would be? In my experience a RAID BBU significantly drops it, sometimes to the point of no manual fsck required, but in event of a manual fsck shouldn't the BBU be able to provide more consistent data (less errors) and therefore a much shorter fsck? Maybe just recovering the journal?
I'm currently connecting one of my servers to an iSCSI SAN but would like to hook up another server to that target as well. However, this doesn't work with NTFS filesystem and I couldn't really find any windows solutions for that. Does anyone have experience with this?

i had to do a file system back up because of the size of my database.
i shutdown postmaster and tar'd the files.
i recently reloaded my OS and now i'm attempting to restore the backups. i first shut down postmaster, restored the backups to the data folder and restarted postmaster.
i then su'd from root to postgres user:
Code: [postgres@austin1 pgsql]$ psql service_2_3 psql: FATAL: database "service_2_3" does not exist DETAIL: The database subdirectory "base/16385" is missing.
the backups had a database named service_2_3 but upon restoring the backups, it doesn't seem to be available.
my data directory is /var/pgsql/data.
Code: [postgres@austin1 pgsql]$ ls -lahR /var/pgsql/ | grep 16385 but that yielded nothing.
have i done something wrong while backing up? i don't think i have since i followed the postgres manual when backing up. but the administrators have not been very thorough with how they've set the system up for me.
how i can resolve this issue if you have the time.
Installing package webmin-1.350-1 needs 1 inodes on the / filesystem Hmm, this is the first time I've encountered this error when installing Webmin and I have no idea what it means. My other servers doesnn't output this error.
What does it means by it needs 1 inodes on the filesystem?
We have been working on a site for a while, couple of days ago I copied the source from the server - as there are few people making the changes to it - to get a fresh copy.
Yesterday I was blasted by my client that I have deleted files on the server and it had caused the site to go in disarray and they had to upload everything again.
I didn't delete anything, only copied, and after some arguments (naturally I am not happy with the allegation put on me) I was able to get the FTP log, but I don't really know how to read it, I am hoping that someone here would know and be able to assist:
HTML4Strict Code: Tue Mar 04 16:49:29 2008 0 xx.xx.xx.xx 9365 /home/APP_NAME/public_html/user/add_room.php a _ i r xxxx ftp 1 * cTue Mar 04 18:20:02 2008 0 xx.xx.xx.xx 3909 /home/APP_NAME/public_html/About.php a _ o r xxxx ftp 1 * cTue Mar 04 18:20:04 2008 0 xx.xx.xx.xx 6046 /home/APP_NAME/public_html/affiliate-join.html a _ o r xxxx ftp 1 * cTue Mar 04 18:20:08 2008 0 xx.xx.xx.xx 6158 /home/APP_NAME/public_html/affiliate-join.php a _ o r xxxx ftp 1 * c
I have replaced the IP, application name with x.
I am guessing that *c means copy, but I don't want to make fool of myself when I confront them with this. Assuming that *c is copy what would be the command for delete?
This is cPanel stats runner on server.domain.com! While processing the log files for user xxxx, the cpu has been maxed out for more than a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of this email is 18:46:25 up 59 days, 13:16, 0 users, load average: 2.24, 2.23, 2.25
You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take steps to lower the load. If you want stats to continue to run even with a high load
So what does this mean? and how can i check out this? how to reduce the cpu usage? Where to see the current usage?
About a month ago, I searched desperately for days to host my social networking site and file hosting site. Thankfully I found Wiredtree(WT) to be suitable for my budget. I signed with them with their entry plan of $44.10 and was happy with their service. The customer support was extremely helpful and they did everything to make my life better.
Nevertheless my project didn't turn up as expected and I decided to close the hosting.
Just a day before the end of one month of hosting, I wrote to them asking to close the account and also congratulating their service I also told them I would look forward to host with them in future and would recommend them. I expected a warm termination without any hassle. But i got a mail quoting their TOS (which says I should inform them 7 days in advance) and asking me to pay up another month's hosting fee before I can close the account. Along with it was a note from the staff to use the client portal to contact Billing Department directly to close the account (hmmm would they ask me to contact sales department directly if I tell me I want to add new server?). What hurt me was not the extra $44.10 which I will pay them anyway, but what they could have done was to understand my genuine case(first time customer). Tell me, how many of us read the TOS really. I requested them not to charge me, but got same cold response asking me to adhere to the TOS.
On the other hand my experience with other host (PM me if you want to know who) was one of awe and amazement. I wrote asking them the price I should pay to have more bandwidth. To my surprise I got extra bandwidth absolutely free though it wasn't mentioned such things in their TOS.
Well I learned a lesson today not to forget the importance of TOS and i am sure new webmasters will find this post useful.
This thread is not against the WT service. But a warning to new webmasters who might miss the fine print.
I have brand new server with CentOS 5.3 and latest CentOS kernel (2.6.18-128.1.10.el5PAE).
I have brand new HDDs with no errors (HDDs have only 1000 power-on-hours, server CPU temperature is normal - between 35-42 C). My server went read-only without any reason. I need to fsck main / partition (/home is separated) and it cleaned journal, then server became online.
After 2 weeks it happens again - I did again fsck on / partition and it recovered journal as before. I decided to ask Data Center to replace RAID-1 card and memory - they did it. After 3 weeks server went read-only again.
I ssh into server and saw that kswapd0 process is using 100% cpu and load is over 170.
After fsck it recovered journal on / and server is again available.
I had a linux server (CentOs 5, mysql5, php5, directadmin). I had problems with apache few days ago, that's why i hire sys. admin who tweak the system (install the PAE kernel), and some more configurations, and during last 7-8 days server work w/o any downtime (before this server had 1-2 downtimes per day-> OOM killer.)
Now i had only ssh access (emails, directadmin access - give "wrong password" answer). As told my sys.admin It became read only system.
I cann't even reboot system
[root@server sa]# reboot reboot: /usr/local/lib/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/libcairo.so.2)
such few commands work, the most commands that i know don't work
[root@server ~]# ls -la ls: error while loading shared libraries: libacl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I just thought I would riase an issue you with you about the following host:
hostvector.com hostmds.com The reason:
I have received a number of e-mails over the last 2weeks that look like they are from my bank asking me to log-in and update my security information. I no my bank doe's not ever do this so I contacted them. When sending on the mail to them, they where able to trace the e-mail and it took them back to the address listed above using the e-mail account firstname.lastname@example.org.
So before you hand over your bank account details to them I highly recommend that think twice.
I'd love to contact the domain registrars of the recipient spammers who are barraging me with the latest "google riches", or "ebay success" sales pitch emails, but I lack the knowledge of how to reveal the email headers and interpret them.
Is there a particular email client program that would allow me to view all parts of the email ? Maybe I'm using the wrong client (outlook), that would not allow me to view the more technical parts of the email, but but I don't know.
If I go ahead and click on their "unsub me" links at their bottom, that's their tricky way of finding out what emails are active and possibly make it worse for me. I know that it's illegal to send me email that I didn't opt into, in the first place, even if they do provide the unsubscribe link at the bottom, with the usual "Icann" spam disclaimer that they include.
